My dear Heath:

There was certainly no occasion for your apologizing for not saying good-bye to my brother. We all understood perfectly.

I wish I could look forward to the pleasure of seeing the old University again, and I shall certainly make it possible at the time I visit Staunton unless something prevents which I do not now foresee. I hope with all my heart that I can do it under circumstances of as little ceremony as possible. I love the old place for its memories and its simplicities, and not for the trouble that I have subsequently got into.

We are settled here for a little period of rest and recreation, and I hope to come back with new zest and refreshment for my work.

With warmest affection, I am

Faithfully yours,
Woodrow Wilson
